Just next to East Lancs road in Manchester. You wouldn't know it's there just by going pass it.

Hmm, no interest whatsoever. These must be really crap then.

I like I like, been waiting for the spring to get some shots just like this. Took a bimble down an old greenlane last spring looking for some views and came across a vast field of rape (no more boundary fences down our way) that would have made a great pano. Intense cobalt blue sky and gray clouds, like you see before a storm. I'll have the camera with me next time though.
As for me, all I know is that I know nothing.

Hi Greg
The first one works well for me and I could imagine this as a very large print to get the full impact of the scene. Looks a little dark on my screen though.

The second one doesn't have the same appeal to me. I think I would prefer to see more field in the shot, at the moment the field and sky seem to be fighting for attention with neither winning. Hope that makes sense.
Regards
George

Thanks.

The tree on first one is a bit dark because of grad filter I used, but it should be ok overall, I'm doing all them on calibrated screen and it looks ok on mine.

I couldn't get more field in the second, I was standing in the field with 10-20mm lens. Any lower would put ugly green stems of that rapeseed in the frame. I'll try longer lens and different viewpoint next spring.
